We may not be able to go on retreat together physically at the moment, but we’re really pleased that this August we’ll have the chance to go on retreat together online!

From 2nd – 9th August, we’ll be joining the London Buddhist Centre and people from other centres across the UK and Ireland to come together online for a week-long, intensive summer retreat.  

We’ll be looking at how we can turn this time of uncertainty into an opportunity for freedom by: 

      • Learning meditation from scratch, or taking our practice further with interactive workshops
      • Engaging with inspirational talks about the Buddhist vision for life
      • Exploring and discussing meditation and other aspects of practice in small groups with people from across the world
      • Connecting with retreat leaders and asking questions directly
      • Receiving daily emails with tips on how to turn your life into a retreat
      • Exploring Buddhist ritual and discovering ways to find greater meaning in life 

There will be afternoon events with us from Brixton, as well as time to come together across the centres in large numbers to practice the Buddha’s teaching. 

The best way to make the most of the retreat is to take the week off work and commit to joining in with everything. But if you can’t do that, just come to what you can. 

If you have any questions, contact

We are sad to say that all Triratna Retreat Centres will be closed until the at least the end of July due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Our upcoming Brixton Summer Open retreat and our Order/Mitra study weekend have been cancelled. 

There are, however, a variety of online retreats happening. See The Buddhist Centre Online for details.


Going on retreat offers the precious opportunity to be away from the busyness of London life, surrounded by beautiful countryside and with the benefit of guidance from experienced teachers. Whatever your level of experience it’s an invaluable way of taking your practice deeper. Firstly, we would most recommend the Brixton Sangha Retreats. Going on retreat with people you already know and practice with can be especially conducive to deeper mental states. 

Please note: We are sad to say that all Triratna Retreat Centres will be closed until June due to the COVID-19 Pandemic
